Just installed new tvonics250 freeview + box

Just installed new tvonics DTR Z250 freeview + box, installed and worked o.k., set to record, on returning couple of hours later unable to use handset to view epg, menus, recorded programmes,etc. Have unplugged and checked all connections, re-programmed handset, which works t.v.on/off, volume and channel change but nothing else. Can`t get a green light on the set top box, just a constant red light.

Hi,

I have one of these boxes and one of the things which has caught me out a couple of times is that the remote can control three devices. To turn the Z250 on and off you may need to press the DTR button at the top of the remote first. When you press the on/off button on the remote the DTR button should light up red to let you know the signal is being sent to the Z250.

You are probably aware of this but just in case you weren't

Bought a tvonics freeview dtr-hv250 digital tv recorder, keeps coming up but it wont allow me to record. keeps saying the hard drive is unformatted. done what it says on the on screen instructions but


Go to your on screen menu under dtr settings and format the hard drive. If you have been recording the hard drive may be full and some programs need to be deleted to allow more recording space. You may also unplug the unit for several minutes and use the reset box option.

TVonics DVR FP 250 hard drive fault


This is a indication of a hard drive failure you could run a program called spinright on this its a small investment of $50 bucks but does save hard drives and 9 times out of 10 puts them back in business. But when in doubt replace the hard drive as if trying the format it does not work its safe to assume that you need a new drive. Thanks please do rate.

Hi, I have a DTV Recorder with a WD1600 HDD unit says its not formatted and is unable to format. Tried a new disk, but it wont format that either. Pulled the original disk and I can see two partitions....


Hi, try changing the power supply!
Although mine was showing 12v output (unloaded), once it was put under load there was not enough power to run the freeview and the hard drive at the same time so only the freeview worked. £16 from TVonics and everthing is fine, didn't have to format the drive so I didn't loose any data

Pop open remote case you will need knife or thin steel ruler to do this.
Clean the board contacts and the conductive pads with switch cleaner or isopropyl alcolhol cleaner and you will find it will work fine.

This could solve problem
1. Select Menu, Set-Up, Help.
2. Press the Green button on the remote control.
3. This shows the Advanced Information screen.
4. Now press the Blue button which will prompt you with a warning box.
5. Now press the Green button if you wish to proceed.
6. The DTR will take around a minute to complete the reformat, and will then automatically restart itself.
Next do a channel rescan.
